Each year the Baltimore CFA Society sponsors a free event to all its members and CFA candidates* in order to celebrate new CFA Charterholders. Dr. Michael D. McMillan will join us on May 12th to recognize the accomplishment of new Charterholder recipients and to discuss and highlight the value of the CFA program.
"How to do the right thing even if no one is watching"
- Can ethics be dangerous to your career?
- What should you do if you are asked to do something that you believe is illegal or unethical?
Although ethical dilemmas are a normal and predictable part of most jobs, they can be dangerous to your career if you are not prepared for the organizational challenges that may test your personal values, moral beliefs, and commitment to doing the right thing.
This interactive presentation, by Dr. Michael G. McMillan, Director, Ethics and Professional Standards at CFA Institute, examines several real life ethical dilemmas that professionals working in the financial services industry may face in the course of their careers. These cases challenge participants to consider the various courses of action to address the issues involved. Hand held electronic "response devices" are used to allow participants the opportunity to vote on the best course of action and to stimulate discussion.
